Ecstasy/Fallout VII

the dust settled during the epilogue
no lives were lost
no tears couldn’t be dried up

sure, everything ended
the rage of a fire cleanses the forest
leaving seeds for new adventures

was it worth the fallout?
that viewpoint is TBD at last call
when all can be looked at empirically

but if the question needed answering now
it should be said if one thing were changed
one path left for other to travel
one drink kept in the keg
all would be different
now would not exist
fingers would not be telling you this
more journeys would not be possible

so it can’t be that bad.


Where The Hell?

Feeling anxious through hair
Rumbles of hesitation
Not accepting curtain call
All that happens after the last kiss
Goodnight and goodbye
Where does that leave one?
Lost in a desert
Searching for a puddle
Anticipating the end
Maybe after each step?
Suddenly after looking both ways
Memories can only amount to so much
Years hiding in the mountains
Still broken and down to nothing
Curled up in a cargo container
Broken and down to nothing
While everything projects under lids
Broken images down to fragments
Suddenly a smile is tainted by future tears
Broken cries reassembling below
Stirring an inner tantrum
False denials melting under reality
Payments called for collection
Couldn’t grab the keys quickly enough
Caught by broke minions
Summoned by a faceless cash machine
“Karma no longer has a payment plan
For you must tumble to eternities depth”
All those ghosts piled in your yard
They tell their story for the jury
The verdict is clear
